As your children grow, most of them will develop beautiful smiles, however sometimes those beautiful smiles can be damaged by accident and that is why emergency dental services are necessary. One of the most common dental emergencies is losing or having an adult tooth knocked out. In this case it is important to rinse the tooth with cold water and place it in a cup of milk and head straight to the Centennial dentists. A broken tooth is another common dental emergency. Save any broken fragments. Have the child use a cold compress until you arrive at the office. Biting through a lip or tongue is another common dental emergency. Typically the bleeding will stop on its own with a cold compress, however if the injury is severe enough and the bleeding does not stop, head straight to the emergency room.
